IST Stereo help!

Postby andrewgreen1000 » Sun Dec 06, 2015 6:40 pm

Hey Guys

My girlfriend just got an 04 IST as her new daily driver. The car itself is great, my only problem is that the stereo doesn't play any music etc at all. It is stuck on the G-book screen. and pressing any of the buttons doesn't help, or change anything.

Any ideas? For now all I want to do is make it useable with a band expander. later on down the track we will probably replace it with something else. I had seen people have had a bit of success recently changing some other toyota stereos of this era to english, and getting navigation working etc so thought there might be someone who knows whats up.

This is whats behind the screen:

The car also has this crazy thing too:Image
From what I can tell that is just a voice audio navigation system, so i was thinking of just pulling that out.

Cheers
Andrew

Bottom is just the ETC (Electronic Toll Collection) unit. Useless in NZ, come in most, if not all japanese imports. Removed them from my old Legacy and Fuga.

Same deal, just bin it.

A lot of the Jap Nav stuff needs the CD/DVD in there to reboot from every time the battery is disconnected,
and some of them just don't work as the GPS tells it that is on the wrong side pf the planet and the system cant figure it out.

Sometimes with enough mucking around locating disc's and software etc you can get the radio to go,
but usually only until the battery goes flat or is disconnected again.
